The Cornhole Game Can Be Made At Home

By: Dave Roth

People can buy the cornhole game at a lot of different places, but it is also easy and fun to make your own game set. By doing that, you will have a great game to play when you are finished, but you will also have the satisfaction of a job well done. The whole family can even join in if they want to, and it can become a project for everyone to work on. Not everyone would enjoy doing this, but most people like to be handy and creative. If they are given the chance, they can make all sorts of things. To make a Cornhole game at home you only need some basic tools and basic woodworking skills. It is much easier to do than most people think. It might not look quite like a professional set if you are a beginner, but that does not mean that you cannot have fun with it and enjoy the game once it is done. There is no need to worry about perfection right away - the basics will be sufficient. The game board can be made from something other than wood, but it is not recommended. While some of the boards that can be bought are made from plastic, this is much more difficult to work with than wood.

It is not something that most people can do in their garage or their basement.

It is important to be careful any time you are working around tools. Making a Cornhole game board is not that difficult, and you can get instructions free on the Internet. Just be careful and follow them properly - including safety precautions - so that you do not end up getting hurt. Injury would work to ruin the fun of making your own Cornhole game. If you follow the directions and do not rush the job, there is no reason why you cannot make your own game board pretty easily. You will want to make sure that the dimensions are correct, and that you have smoothed down the edges. This will help to prevent chips and splintering. These things can make your board look unsightly and tear up the Cornhole bags. They can also be dangerous to the players, and this is especially true of small children who might not be as careful around the game. You might also want to coat your board with a stain, paint, or varnish so that it is better protected from the elements.

You do not have to stop at the board, and you can also make the Cornhole game bags. These are small, soft cloth bags that are tossed gently toward the board. The object is to get the bag through the hole, scoring points. If you get the bag to land on the game board and not fall off you also get points, but not as many as you would for a bag that went through the hole. These bags were originally filled with dried corn, but there are other choices. Some people still use corn, but you can also fill them with dried beans. If you do this, you must be careful that the bags do not get wet. The safest way to make the Cornhole game bags is to fill them with plastic pellets which can be bought. This will stop so many worries about the weather and make the bags more durable. Sewing them on a machine is best, but they can also be sewn by hand if they are stitched tightly. Making your own Cornhole set will take a little time, but the satisfaction of doing it will be a great reward.
